For many children, that means vacations, summer camp, fun at the pool and time with friends. However, for other children in our community, summer means one thing: hunger. When school ends, so does access to nutritious meals for many children in Northeast Pennsylvania.
You see, many of the children in need in our community participate in the free or reduced-price breakfast and lunch program at their schools. Now that school is out, their families need to provide two additional meals each day to nourish their children’s growing bodies. Which means putting an additional strain on an already-thinning wallet.
But that’s where you and Weinberg Northeast Regional Food Bank step in. You can help provide summer meals to kids in our community with your donation today. With your donation and our resources, we can team up to help feed children in need while school is out. Your generosity will ensure that children and their families have the food they need this summer.
Thank you for caring.
